The Scholar Book Review

A leap through time. A choice to make. A destiny to change.

Dismissed by her professors, ridiculed by her classmates, Serena Metcalfe is determined to prove the existence of the Samu Aqaru, the powerful stone of the ancient pharaohs – even if it means travelling through time. But her study of Egyptology did not prepare her for the dangers and passions of the real Egypt of 2361 BC. Crocodile attacks, kidnapping, betrayal, murder…and a pharaoh who believes she is a goddess and wants her as his queen. But Serena isn’t about to give herself to a king – not when finding the precious Stone could mean saving the man she loves.

Irresistible playboy Shepseskaf, fated for an early death, and his loyal yet ruthless cousin Pepisenkaura were once the closest of friends, but the right to the throne of Egypt and their rivalry for Serena threaten to transform them into bitter and eternal enemies. Only Serena knows the tragic destiny that awaits, and only Serena can rewrite history…by following her heart.

 My Review

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.  Serena, has a strong desire to travel through time to the land of Ancient Egypt, to find out about the existence of Samu Aqaru and gets more than what she’s bargained for.   She travels back to 2361 BC.  Unfortunately, her cliff jumping time traveling has her injured by a crocodile in the Nile River and rescued by two hotties in a loincloth.  That is when her adventure begins…

When May Nicole Abbey asked if I’d like to review The Scholar, I jumped at the chance.  I loved Dreamer and couldn’t wait to see where they would take me this time.  This book certainly doesn’t disappoint!  There’s lots of action, suspense, adventure and even a love triangle.  The descriptions were excellent, I felt as if I was right there with Serena, seeing what she saw.  This was quite the page turner and well worth the wait.  If you enjoyed The Dreamer, you’ll love The Scholar!
